• ## Algebra 1

Presently, Saint Mary School is in the early stages of a curriculum review cycle. Saint Mary School has adopted the rigorous academic curriculum set forth by the Archdiocese of Hartford. In accordance with our mission, the Archdiocese of Hartford Curriculum reflects a continuum of learning from prekindergarten through high school graduation, and the standards are based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, infused with Catholic social teaching, rooted in basic skills, and immersed in technology and 21st century literacies. Furthermore, all curriculum documents are in alignment with national and state standards and exceed the Common Core State Standards.

ALGEBRA STANDARDS

A1.Understand and describe patterns and functional relationships

A2. Represent and analyze quantitative relationships in a variety of ways

A3.Use operations, properties and algebraic symbols to determine equivalence and solve problems A4.Use properties and characteristics of two- and three-dimensional shapes and geometric theorems to describe relationships, communicate ideas, and solve problems

A5.Use spatial reasoning, location, and geometric relationships to solve problems

A6. Develop and apply units, systems, formulas and appropriate tools to estimate and measure

Expressions Equations, Functions, and Inequalities

Students will:

· interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients

· make and justify predictions based on patterns

· apply the appropriate properties of real numbers and the steps for order of operations to write, evaluate, simplify, add, subtract, multiply, and divide expressions

· derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series and use to solve problems

· understand that a function, y = f(x), is a rule that assigns to each input (domain) exactly one output (range) - the graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding

· use function notation to evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context

· solve one-variable linear equations and

· analyze and solve linear equations, functions, and pairs of linear equations and functions

Problem Solving

· rational equations

Statistics and Probability

· create equations and inequalities in one or two variables and use them to solve problems

· solve standard word problems using one or two variables including:

· interpret the solution to identify the number of acceptable solutions (e.g., extraneous solutions)

· evaluate solutions for reasonableness, accuracy, and completeness

· Identify and interpret data with exponential behavior.

· investigate patterns of association in two-variable data
